Drawing from the Amores might have been interesting. Isn't there a new adult webcomic portal now?
Unfortunately I missed Maroon ending about a week or so ago. I really enjoyed checking in on that one, because it always seemed to be willing to try something a little different. It wasn't about bringing the funny, but it did seem to carry a bittersweet overtone most of the time, as you can tell by the last sentance in it.
So that's sad. But then we find that Derik Badman has moved on to a new project, one that looks to update more often and draws upon the Metamnorphoses by Ovid, called Things Change. As a guy with a degree in Classical Studies, this makes me happy, though I am sad to see he doesn't expect gods and monsters to go tromping through the comic (Why not Derik? Why not!?).
Given his willingness to take time and create a gentle rhythm that carries you back over and over I think this will be a good one to watch. It certainly makes a change from the 'fit in all the gags and still have enough energy left for a rimshot' pace that is more typical for webcomics. The inspiration should also lead to wonderful artwork, as we can see appearing in the echoing images of the first strip.
